Happy memories against Rangers' next opposition may be what Alfredo Morelos needs

Glasgow Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos is enduring a very poor of form in front of goal for the Ibrox side.

While Alfredo Morelos' work-rate has meant that his recent run of form has not been anywhere near as bad as it looks on paper, Rangers cannot ignore the fact that he has now gone nine games without a goal in all competitions.

Morelos' displays have often still been impressive despite the lack of goals, but he will undoubtedly be hugely disappointed with his performance against Hamilton at the weekend when he squandered some great chances to put the Gers in front before Accies sprung the surprise.

That display may have perhaps brought home how long it has now been since Morelos was able to celebrate scoring a goal, and it would be no surprise if he is seriously lacking confidence.

So perhaps Rangers' next opponents are the ideal ones for the Colombian to be facing given that he has much happier memories playing against them.

Back in September, Morelos went into the Gers' clash with Dundee with five goals in his previous three games. And he carried on his brilliant run of form, bagging a brace to help the side secure an emphatic 4-1 win. 

Graeme Murty may be suggesting to Morelos this week that the striker has Dundee's number and knows how to get the better of them in the hope that it gives him the belief he needs to put his recent goalless run to the back of his mind and get back to being the striker that looked an inspired signing earlier in the campaign.
